The objective of the project is to promote private sector investment in renewable energy in Kazakhstan to achieve Kazakhstan’s 2030 and 2050 targets for renewable energy.
The project targets both large-scale and small-scale renewable energy. The goal of this project is to achieve energy market transformation in Kazakhstan by significantly scaling-
up the deployment of renewable energy in electricity generation, from a 0.77% share of renewable energy to a 10% share by 2030, which makes for 10-
fold increase in renewable energy-based energy generation to be facilitated by the project. In large-scale renewable energy, the project will promote Kazakhstan as a prime destination for international investment.
Technologies will include wind energy and solar photovoltaic (PV). In small-scale renewable energy, the project will promote investment in RES for urban life , on-
grid small-scale renewable energy applications, targeting urban households and businesses; and RES for rural life , both on-
grid and off-grid small-scale renewable energy applications, targeting farms and rural SMEs. Technologies may include solar PV (roof-
top), solar water heating and small-scale wind. The project will promote the latest business and finance models for small-
scale RES developers (for example, third-party ownership models). The design and implementation of this project make use of the Derisking Renewable Energy Investment’ (DREI) methodology developed by UNDP, which is a model for quantitative and qualitative comparison of the cost-
effectiveness of different public instruments in promoting renewable energy investment.
The project is structured under three components :
Component 1 Large-Scale Renewable Energy : Policy and Financial Derisking Measures
Component 2 Renewable Energy for Life : Policy Derisking
Component 3 Renewable Energy for Life : Financial Derisking and Incentives with cross-cutting activities related to knowledge management, and monitoring and evaluation included within these components.
